We are steadily moving through the entire remodel of my “Client Freaking Fabulous’s” house. We have graduated from the kitchen and the front area of the casa, and have now moved onto phase 2 which is all the bathrooms. We have thrown together some serious inspo and made some mood boards and elevations. I thought I would give you all a gander at what we have been cooking.
What a wonderful long weekend that was! We had a big BBQ for my brothers B-day and labor day combined and then we went out for some kick ass Mexican food and a little bowling with some pals. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to summer…even though it’s still 136 degrees here. In work life “client freakin fabulous” has wrapped up the first phase of construction.
If you missed it…here is the house prior to them moving in …
Recently, we started a new project with some lovely clients down in Newport Beach CA. We can’t say enough about how great the whole experience thus far has been. In fact it has been “Freakin’ Fabulous” hence why we have lovingly dubbed them “Client Freaking Fabulous”. Literally, they are so amazing, and EASY ….our conversations typically sound like this….
ME: “Hey Client Freaking Fabulous how about this, that, and a little bit of this and that?”
YOU GUYS!!!!! I just made what feels like one of the largest decisions in my professional career!! I signed a lease on a new design studio and retail space!!! GAAAAHH just typing this makes me feel giddy and scared and a bit proud all rolled into one giant hot emotional mess. I keep telling Bridgid and Amy (my assistants) that I feel like we are “big girls now”. I have no clue at all how this will go but I feel very official and very happy that I will no longer be working from my cavernous home office and trusting that we are taking a giant step in the right direction.
So for the past 3+ years I have often mentioned my “Client Awesome”. I believe I have shown some before and after pics here and there, but have never officially really shown the whole shebang or given an entire house tour. Well, finally I got my stuff together and took a trip down to the “The Awesome’s” house for a little impromptu photo shoot, and I am about to show it all!!
It’s no secret that I am an gal through and through. It’s funny because one of my fondest memories as a tween involved . When I was in the 8th grade (about 3 thousand years ago) I became obsessed with a dress I spotted in an catalogue. From the minute I laid my eyes on it I knew I had to make it mine. As most tween-agers do, I ripped the page out of the catalogue and taped it to the wall above my bed.
